Dear List,

Here's a question about a band which I can find no information about, anywhere. I've heard a few recordings by a band called the "Dixie Two-Steppers" on Radio Dismuke and like them a lot. The recordings sound like possible transcriptions of a mid-20's radio program, almost certainly for dancing. They aren't the best group, but nevertheless, thier recordings have a certain energy and verve about them. The recordings are almost always medleys consisting of two songs from then recent movies or revues, such as one especially nice medley of "Am I Blue?" and "Liza" from "Showgirl". They are announced clearly at the beginning and end of each number. Does anyone know about this great but little-known band? One possibility is that "Dixie Two-Steppers" may be a recording pseudonym used by a little-known dance orchestra.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Have a good weekend,
Henry

Dear Board,

I recently found a copy of the "Sunny Meadows" LP on eBay, but failed to place my bid before the auction closed. Oh, well. It was too bad, but hopefully another will come up soon. When I do find a copy and convert it to digital files, I'll be sure to post them so everyone can hear this great yet all but forgotten band.

Thanks for your help and advice!
Henry
